Been printing art since 1984 - was using fluorescent colors
before I ever even heard of Kozik! Got serious about the
music end in 1993, mainly as a way to get into shows and
drink free beer... First one was a Swervedriver show. Print
runs are limited, with signed editions ranging from 50 -
150. Been huckstering at shows, conventions, record stores
across the US, and on the Internet...
Subject matter: Mainly a hard
core computer guy who brings my own drawings and photographs
into the computer and 'processes' the hell out of 'em. Some
times I lift stuff. Got the text and fonts bug from experimenting
with an old printing press originally used to print the
'Golden Transcript' way back in early Colorado history.
The wood type collection was amazing... Done 150+ flyers
for the Fox Theatre and Denver/Boulder shows, about half
of them 2-3 color 11" x17"s (in offset print runs
of 300). It's fun to see the stuff up around town.
I screen the ones I'm into -- like to experiment and vary
the colors in printing an edition. Silkcreens are prepared
using photo-emulsion and acetates. Been using water based
inks (thanks to Kozik's information) with an occasional
foray back into the death-defying world of lacquer. Registration
is accomplished by blocking against matboard tabs. Been
printing all my own stuff, but I'll sell out and hire someone
to help at the first opportunity!
Favorite one is the Dick Dale - The promoter asked "What's
with the horns?"... so I stuck a trident in the
surfer's hand and everything was fine! Solo shows include
Bombs Away in Corvallis, Oregon - Sept./Nov. 1994 and Cafe
Mars in Boulder, Colorado -July/August 1996. We played opening
night (electronic/ experimental trip-slop) at the club as
well -- yeah, another foiled musician! Also, Mercury Framing
in Boulder, Colorado - Jan./Feb. 2003.
Hope that's enough - Jeff
